Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio
The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio, opened in spring of 2005, is a 10,000 square foot television studio which can accommodate a variety of events. Located on the west side of the WSRE Kugelman Center for Telecommunications on the campus of Pensacola State College, just across the street from the Pensacola Regional Airport, the studio can be used as a soundstage, a performance venue, as a location for large public or private events. In addition to WSRE's own local/National television productions, the Amos has hosted numerous concerts, lectures, fashion shows, music recitals, dance recitals, pageants, and plays since it opened. WSRE works with non-profits and other organizations to produce local and regional cultural productions that can be broadcast on WSRE from the Amos Studio, as well as launching new talent that can be aired regionally and nationally through PBS, increasing organization exposure. Community organizations, businesses and churches have successfully utilized the space, layout and convenient location offered by the Amos Studio. Click here to learn more about renting the Amos >>
The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio was built to support the mission of WSRE in the Gulf Coast community, serving as a community resource and providing valuable services and educational outreach to the citizens of the Gulf Coast area. Funding for the studio's construction came from many sources including major donors, matching dollars from the state legislature, and the lead gift ($500,000) of the Future Vision Capital Campaign made by Northwest Florida natives Jean and Paul Amos. Philanthropists Jean Amos, a native Pensacolian, and Paul Amos, co-founder of AFLAC, reside in Columbus, GA. The studio is named in honor of their generous gift.
